While watching the Winter Olympics, I saw that there was a snowboarding event where riders would do tricks in a half pipe. After seeing the event, I wanted to try it for myself, so I went to an indoor snowboarding facility to practice. I did one trick where I went really high into the air and spun around three times, but when I came back down, I landed incorrectly and hit my back. I was in a lot of pain and had to go to one of the San Francisco chiropractors for medical treatment.
Apparently there had been a lot of other people who had been admitted to the chiropractor since watching the Olympics. The chiropractor told me that lots of people imitate what they see on television, thinking they can instantly become the next great athlete. I didn’t feel so bad about my injury, since I knew that I wasn’t the only one. Read the rest of this entry
I travel a lot, and there are certain large cities where I become a little nervous when I need to drive. One of these cities is Phoenix. It’s a large, metropolitan city with many roads and freeways. A careless driver hit me when I was driving to an appointment, so I needed a Phoenix chiropractor right away. I work for a company where taking time off is highly frowned upon, and it would have looked really bad if I told the client that I could not meet up with him. I did, however, call him to tell him about my accident, and I rescheduled for later that day.
Right after I was in the vehicle accident, I sat inside my rental car to wait for the police officers, who were on their way. My back felt pretty tender, and I was worried about that. I was very appreciative that the police officers showed up quickly. I also called the rental car company, and they showed up rather quickly, too. They also took care of calling a tow truck to come pick up the car that I had been driving in that was hit. It’s nice when things work well after you have been stressed out by something else.
As soon as I got a new vehicle to drive, I headed to the chiropractor’s office. I had been to Phoenix many times, so I knew exactly where to go. I was really glad that they were willing to see me right away instead of making me wait for an appointment. I told them that I was traveling and that I also had an appointment that I needed to get to. They were happy to see me within minutes of me walking in the door. I met with the chiropractor, who worked his magic on me, and I was back out the door within only 30 minutes and on the way to see the client with no trouble.
